pledge of allegiance unconstitutional

But only in the Ninth Circuit, which includes Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that the phrase "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance is an unconstitutional endorsement of religion. While not directly on point, this is some contrast to last year's ruling by the Sixth Circuit that Ohio's motto, "''With God, all things are possible,'' is constitutional.
